Dude, why are we supporting this *wholly inappropriate* late breakage? This
is not the kind of change that we should meekly accept at this stage of the
release process. We don't *have* to do this, and we *shouldn't* do it. This
is a choice between release discipline and riding a train wreck.

My tough stance on this has *nothing* to do with dobey or quasi-usability
issues raised on Planet GNOME - I fully support doing it at the start of the
next release cycle. But seriously, the *NEXT* release cycle.

Don't get caught on the train wreck,
